Hatchet is a 2007 slasher film written and directed by Adam Green. When two friends, Ben (Joel Moore) and Marcus (Deon Richmond), go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, they decide to go on a tour of the swamp. They board tour guide Shawn's (Parry Shen) boat along with a motley group of fellow tourists, including actresses, a director, a couple, and a beautiful woman named Marybeth (Tamara Feldman). As they are on the boat, it unexpectedly crashes and sinks, stranding the passengers in the swamp. Soon, they realize that they are not alone, because the deranged spirit of Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) is stalking them. His father accidentally hit him in the face with a hatchet many years ago, and now Crowley murders anybody who ventures too close to his home. As Crowley begins to murder the tourists, they struggle to remain free from his clutches and to find a way out of the swamp.
